BJR completes Bathurst line-up

Brad Jones Racing has announced the signing of Ash Walsh for the Bathurst 1000 in a move that completes its driver line-up.

Walsh will partner Jack Smith at the wheel of the #4 SCT Logistics Commodore in what will be his seventh start in the event.

He previously co-drove for the team between 2016 and 2019.

“I’m looking forward to being back on the grid this year at the mountain and returning to BJR and joining Jack and the SCT crew,” he said.

“I’ve known Jack for a while now, we met through Super2 when he started with BJR and we raced together in 2019 and since then we’ve been good mates on and off track, so I’m looking forward to sharing the car with him at Bathurst.

“The Bathurst 1000 is one of those races where you never know what’s going to happen and anyone on that grid can cross the finish line first, so you just buckle in and see where you come out at the other end.

“Fingers crossed we have a good campaign and conquer the mountain with a good position at the end of it.”

Dale Wood, Dean Fiore and Chris Pither are the other three drivers to have taken on co-driver roles with BJR for 2021.
